We took my Mother in Law to Melizana's for her Birthday last week and we loved our experience. The decor is lovely and understated. We had Saganaki (flaming cheese!) and calamari to start - both were excellent! I enjoyed the chicken souvlaki platter, my partner had the pasta special and MIL had the lambchops! We were all very happy with... More

Went to Melizana on short notice with the intent of a nice intimate meal. Was not disappointed. Casual but classy atmosphere, knowledgeable wait staff who handled our table properly. Our meals were prepared and served in just the right manner.

No real complaints about food, although I found some items heavy like the spanakopita twisters for example.... More

We had dinner tonight. Ordered the chicken souvlaki dinner- some of the pieces were RAW in the center. Told the waitress who offered to cook it. We advised her how dangerous raw chicken is- she spoke with the owner at the back, then came back to apologize. The owner NEVER came to apologize!! Unbelievable! We called her after getting home-...

Nice atmosphere. One waitress, which was alright since it was not busy on this Monday. Great food and fast service. Daily specials. The gyro was delicious. Portions not overwhelming. Will return.

This restaurant is amazing. The food is fantastic, the staff was amazing, and the armosphere was relaxing and romantic. The food is a little pricy, but well worth every penny!
